When I was waiting delivery of my Tiger Cat I had a Freedom Z on loan for a week or so. My lawn is fertilized, irrigated and grows like crazy in the summer. The 19-hp Kawi motor did not have any problems cutting through my lawn growth. I was discharging and not mulching. If you mulch it could be a problem in tall wet grass.
